Baked Tilapia Iowa Cajun Style
35 mins (prep 15, cooking 20)

This is my own recipe that has evolved over the years that I use for all different kinds of fish and large casserole samplers with different kinds of fish when I can afford it. Tilapia is affordable now. I was amazed when my picky eater 5-year-old grandson dropped in with his mom and started scarfing it down off her plate! I vary the spices to my mood, but this is what I used for this batch. You have to give exact amounts; I don't cook that way generally, so vary the flavorings to your taste. I've learned to work with a few basic spices rather than buy any of the hundreds of products out there now unless it's really special and necessary.
